NPA personality theory
[ Post a Response | NPA personality theory ]
In children, there wouldn't be any association between ADHD diagnosis and NPA type. In adults receiving an ADHD diagnosis is a personal choice, a lifestyle choice of sorts. So "Adult ADHD" cases might well be skewed toward non-Perfectionist types. For children being diagnosed with ADHD is an imposition made by ones parents, the primary reason kids are diagnosed as such is that they don't get along with their parents and/or teachers at school. There are any number of reasons why a given child might not get along with his parents or fall behind at school, and this phenomenon can't really be directly related to the NPA model or to any other biological factors, such as genes or brain configuration.
